Taman U Centre Anniversary , July 19th 2003

 This year, the 7th Anniversary Celebrations of our unit was held on the 19th of July. It was a grand occasion as an unexpected crowd of nearly 200 devotees turned up for the event. There were so many people seated outside that we had to open up the fencing of the neighbouring house. There were bhajans followed by EHV students in a dress up show on various gurus in conjunction with Gurupoornima, youth drama entitled Ď Mind Your Valuesí and the launching of the all new Larkin & Taman U integrated website.
